Private car-parking companies who request vehicle keeper data, via electronic means must be a member of the British Parking Association's (BPA) Approved Operator Scheme (AOS). Ongoing membership requires compliance with BPA's code of practice.
A consultation exercise has recently concluded on extending this requirement to also include private car parking companies who request data via the paper based process. The responses are currently being analysed. The effect of the proposed changes would be that all private car-parking companies will have to comply with the BPA's code if they wish to obtain keeper information from Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency.
